ORWIGSBURG - You've seen it often - coaches getting a water cooler bath after winning a championship.
This time, Tri-Valley's players drenched unsuspecting senior catcher Juli Weber.
Weber didn't mind one bit.
Moments earlier Monday evening at Patton Field, Weber crushed the most dramatic of all hits - an inside-the-park home run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to lift the Dawgs to a 1-0 victory over Minersville in a Schuylkill League Division II tiebreaker game.
TOWER CITY - Four Williams Valley High School standouts set to graduate have recently signed on to play ball at the collegiate level.
Three Viking senior soccer players and a senior football athlete have received offers to continue their education while pursuing their sport.
T.J. Leiter and Colin Harrison both plan to attend University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown (UPJ) on soccer scholarships.
Leiter, 18, said UPJ Head Coach Eric Kinsey called him after he saw him playing on his "Supernova" team.
TOWER CITY - A pair of close losses in mid-April left Williams Valley searching for answers.
The Vikings found them and have been nearly unbeatable since.
Owen Daniel tossed a three-hit shutout and Trevor Whelski stroked a pair of two-run doubles as Williams Valley routed Schuylkill Haven 10-0 in a six-inning Schuylkill League Division II game Thursday, May 9 at the Tower City Legion field.
The victory, coupled with Shenandoah Valley's 6-4 win over Minersville, gave the Vikings (16-3, 13-3 D-II) the Division II championship. Williams Valley faced the Division I wild card, Tamaqua Raiders in Monday's second league semifinal at 7 p.m. at Pine Grove's Stump Stadium.
